This weekend was really good.
Instead of breaking it down day by day I just wanted to say that the husband and I spent some much needed quality time together, I mended a cold, and life was just good. There was a lot of medicine taken, flowers brought home from the husband, some walking done and then I was exhausted, some grocery shopping where I kind of cried because I’m just thankful my husband supports all my weird crazy eating and the constant changes.
I learned a lot about letting go of expectations and control this weekend. I’ve had this cold going on 6 days now and it is just kicking me in the butt. It’s made me weak and tired and just BLAH to wear I couldn’t keep up in my step challenge, I was forced to rest, and then the husband and I had some good but hard conversations. I’m learning more about balance and how to let things go and how much I still hold on to; it’s a hard line to be walking but one that I feel I will be walking for the rest of my life. This morning our vacuum stopped working (yay!) so I get to go get that sucker shipped off (praise for warranties) all while trying to clean up after a lazy few days. ANNDD time to get to get ahead of work stuff since I’ve got a busy few weeks going up, ooophf!
PS – I had SO MANY people ask me for links on my dress that I figure I would add them here!
You can purchase the dress here and I highly suggest getting the petticoat as well; it makes the dress have that gorgeous fullness to it!! ((I also have the dress in red and wore it for our engagement photos!))
The Fall Fab Fit Fun Box arrived at my home the other day and I AM IN LOVE!
I’ve been getting this box for over a year and each time I’m more and more impressed with the items they include, they are all just so awesome! The box is $49.99 a season (aka 4x a year) and with each box you normally get WELL OVER the $50 you paid for it; in fact this months box was about $360 in goods!!! Even if something isn’t my cup of tea I save it to use as a gift later on. I actually have a large gift box for add-ons for birthday / Christmas / whatever occasion presents when we’re on a spending freeze or I just need to add something a little extra.
In this months box:
Vince Camuto Luck Tote – Retail: $128
Alfred Teapot – Retail: $26
Cylo Cobra Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds – Retail: $40
Grown Alchemist Polishing Facial Exfoliant Pink Grapefruit & Glucomannan Extract – Retail: $67
Touch in SOL Metallist Liquid Foil Lipstick Duo in “Penny” – Retail: $24.99
BeautyBlender – Retail $20
Glamglow Bubblesheet Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask (2 Pack) – Retail $18
Simply Whimsical Set of 2 Tea Towels – Retail: $14.99
Skin&Co Roma Blue in Capri Shower Gel – Retail: $22
. . .
All in all I’m really excited about everything!
I’ve been wanting wireless earbuds for a while now and i can’t wait to give these a try! The tea towels are precious and the shower gel smells divine!!!
